The Gods of Zul'Aman Remastered Trailer

Recommended Posts


Ivan Kuzkin, the guy behind the WoW Extinction Machinima, is back with a remastered version of the original Gods of Zul'Aman cinematic that was released with Patch 2.3 back in the Burning Crusade.

Ivan also shared two additional videos on his YouTube channel. The first one is a visual comparison of the original and the remastered cinematic.

The second video offers a behind-the scenes look at the making of the trailer.

Nice work with that troll model. Excelent job overall, only two minor notes:
-At 0:32 the wall behind the flowing water should look more ruined and neglected, but in the remastered version it gives the impression it's a fountain looked after by the best gardeners in Azeroth.
-1:26 I noticed this scene was completely overhauled and the moving camera with the rampaging orc warrior certainly gives more dynamism to it, but there's something magical about the old drain life spell animation that makes me prefer the original. Sorry.
Again: it's not criticism, just some notes to the editor and machinima creators, otherwise it's a superb video.

      Gladiator's Distinction is a set bonus that comes from equipping two PvP-specific trinkets in Shadowlands. Blizzard has recently buffed it on the Beta to increase the damage and healing benefit of Versatility from 20% to 40%.
      Gladiator's Distinction - The damage and healing benefit of Versatility is increased by 20% 40% when in Arenas, Battlegrounds, and War Mode. If you equip two PvP trinkets in the Shadowlands, the damage and healing benefit of Versatility while in Arenas, BGs, and War Mode increases by 40%.
      The return of PvP vendors in Shadowlands was a bit problematic from the beginning. First, the vendor was missing gear with specific secondary stats, forcing PvPers to do PvE to get optimal gear.
      PvP gear is further upgradable with Honor/Conquest points, but a PvP item upgraded to the max had the item level equivalent to Mythic+0, which is simply unacceptable given how much time/effort you put into upgrading it.
      Later in Ion's dev update, we found out the team evaluated the secondary stat distribution on gear and the addition of set bonuses, and here we are.
      You can obtain trinkets with the following effects from PvP. Note that they are specific for each trinket and activate in addition to Gladiator's Distinction.
      Gladiator's Badge - Increases primary stat by 252 for 15 seconds. (2 min cooldown) Gladiator's Emblem - Increases maximum health by 0 for 20 seconds. (1.5 min cooldown) Gladiator's Insignia - Increases primary stat by 106 for 20 seconds. Gladiator's Insignia - Your spells and abilities have a chance to grant 106 primary stat for 20 seconds.

      Well, it seems we finally got the the definitive answer to the age old-question of "Where's Mankrik's wife?" The most commonly asked Barrens chat question from Vanilla and Classic has been answered many times on a literal level, as in the "Beaten Corpse" is North of Camp Taurajo, but in the Shadowlands beta, as discovered by Wowhead, we now also got an answer to the more spiritual question of where she ended up after that!
      It seems she was quite the fighter in life before those Quillboar got to her, as she has been sent to Maldraxxus and even got herself a fancy new title!

      She's standing in front of a dwelling in the Burning Thicket (western end of Maldraxxus), an insect infested place where she keeps killing more and more Ranishu creatures that come in from the thicket. She even has a very specific comment about them, which is also a callback to the original quest from Vanilla:

      In case you're not familiar with the reference, her location became one of the bigger memes in Vanilla, as the Lost in Battle quest in which Mankrik asks you to find her was notoriously difficult, as she was fairly well hidden and her body was actually named "Beaten Corpse" and so many, MANY players asked for help. As you can imagine, the answers were helpful only some of the time, and so a meme was born! In the Cataclysm Barrens revamp the quest was removed, but a monument was added, where we initially found out her name, which is why we can recognize her now!
      We're definitely hoping to see more of her in the Shadowlands, although it seems to just be an Easter egg/cameo appearance, but a pretty damn good one at that. And, for those of you planning to play or currently playing Classic, here's her other location, on Azeroth:

      Ghostcrawler, former Lead the Systems Designer for World of Warcraft, shared some more thoughts about WoW on Twitter now that he's returned back to the game as a player.
      Greg started playing a Warrior and picked Mists in Chromie Time. Ghostcrawler said the dev team strived to fix the weird time streams with Chromie for years, and he's glad the team used it to alternate leveling experiences.
      Placeholder for tweet 1319697150335279104 He thinks the Alliance MoP intro didn't feel epic and the Horde battle was added hastily designed. He still loves Jade Forest.
      Placeholder for tweet 1319697626661441536 Greg went Fury, which probably wasn't a great decision at low levels.
      Placeholder for tweet 1319697966534291456 Placeholder for tweet 1319698355098849281 Placeholder for tweet 1319698758309826560 Ghostcrawler wishes they had made an Asian-themed continent with Pandaren instead of branding the whole expansion around them.
      Placeholder for tweet 1319699300692103169 Placeholder for tweet 1319699894773297152 Greg also tried leveling his Priest that he hadn't touched since the Siege of Orgrimmar raid. He doesn't remember how she looked like, but the new customization options altered her beyond recognition.
      Placeholder for tweet 1320407749591666688 Placeholder for tweet 1320408400698638336 Ghostcrawler found the current Profession system and skill-ups confusing.
      Placeholder for tweet 1320408828848947200 Placeholder for tweet 1320409331163033600 Placeholder for tweet 1320409779001454597 Of the classes he tried, Priest changed the most. Discipline lost many heals, for instance. He wants to level up as Disc in dungeons, but he's sure players won't be too patient for folks learning, and the learning curve is quite steep.
      Placeholder for tweet 1320410737001459712 Placeholder for tweet 1320411006510612480 Placeholder for tweet 1320411308542418944 You get too many quests at max-level, which can get confusing, according to Greg.
      Placeholder for tweet 1320414208119296000 GC doesn't like playing Mages.
      Placeholder for tweet 1320413715225669632 The final question is rather rhetorical, and Ghostcrawler asks himself if he'll raid hardcore in Shadowlands, which means saying goodbye to PS5 games that are about to launch.

      Belgian cosplayer Hartigan, the creator of the awesome-looking Bolvar Fordragon costume, is back with another treat. He made Bolvar's hammer from EVA foam, foam clay, and 700 hundred RGB LEDs, and it took him 10 days.
      Here is the costume if you have not seen it yet.
      Placeholder for tweet 1317869403363573767 Additionally, Hartigan also crafted Bolvar's weapon, and 120 hours of work went into the hammer!

      Two speedrunners have been going over their routes for the fastest way to get from level 10 (Allied Race start point) to 50 and have come up with some new moves! Harldan first changed things up from previously established routes and got a record time of 5 hours and 44 minutes on Horde side. He also made a video guide for the route that we'll also be taking a look at, but his record was broken a little earlier today by none other then DesMephisto, as he managed to shave another 10 minutes  off it, getting to 5H35M! Apparently he ran into some bugs as well which cost him some time, and he's estimating he could have gotten another 10 minutes off the time without them.
      DesMephisto's route was a little different from the guide we'll check out below, basically going Silverpine forest until level 20, Hillsbrad Foothills to 32, Gorgrond 40, back to the WoD intro 'til 42, a few bonus objecives in Frostfire Ridge, Talador til 46 and then Spires until just near the end, with the finale in Gorgrond with a whole lot of Prove Your Strength quests!

      The new route that sparked these two new records was from Harldan, and he went into a lot of detail on it's specifics, both in the below video and reddit post:
      And here's the actual run for the above route:
